  • 1 avocado halved and pitted
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon pickled jalapeño slices finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil plus more for brushing on fish and asparagus
  • 4 cod filets
  • 1 pound asparagus (or one bunch) trimmed


  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • Place the avocado, 1 tablespoons of the lime juice, and salt and pepper into the bowl of small food processor.  Process until smooth and set aside. 
  • Place the rest of the lime juice, the jalapeño, and 1 tablespoon of oil in a small bowl and whisk to combine.  Set aside. 
  • Lightly brush olive oil on two baking sheets.  One one sheet, drizzle the asparagus with olive oil and salt and pepper, toss to combine and spread in a single layer.  On the other sheet place the cod filets.  Brush with olive oil and salt and pepper.  Place both in the oven and roast for 12 minutes. 
  • Divide the asparagus and fish between 4 plates.  Drizzle with the jalapeño dressing and serve with the avocado puree. 


Note - the calorie count on this is high because of the avocado puree.  You only use a generous spoonful per serving and there is a lot left over.  
So the calorie count is inflated, your actual serving will be less. 
If you want less heat, use a milder pepper for the dressing.
